I assume, that when talking about Husqvarna chainsaws, there may be a quick way to tell the quality of the saw on looks alone. Price is one indicator as you get what you pay for..... sometimes........ I have a cheap Husky 240. 185 hard earned dollars for what I think may just be a Poulan with springs and orange plastic. Well it still starts and runs. I broke the chainbrake due to operator error, but in that case it left me wondering how this company could let an operator like me break it in the first place.. Long story. My air cleaner is cleaned by first taking out four screws that retain the access cover. 460 rancher is the same way. Or the 455. 435e however this cover is attached by quick connetors, snap clips, whatever for easier maintenance. This saw is reasonably priced for me at 250 bucks. I use a 14 inch bar the most currently, but a bigger saw is in my future. The saws that have this snap feature tend to be higher priced per bar length. The difference being a few more cc's and the tout of better reliability I love the looks of the 440, I could use a bigger saw. It has the snap connectors. Is the 440 worth buying?. Is the quick snaps a sign a better quality? Owner opinions?
